Accusations of illegality over lack of fire drills

By January 29, 2013Blog

CORNWALL Council has been accused of acting illegally by not carrying out evacuation drills at Falmouth Art Gallery and library for three years, councillors heard. Ruth Thomas, the town council’s finance officer, said the problem came to light when she tried to carry out a risk assessment of Town Hall, the last one dating back to 2008.
“I wanted to see Cornwall Council’s risk assessment as owners of the building to ensure they matched,” she told members of the town council’s finance and general purposes committee on Monday night.
“But despite repeated requests they have been unable to produce it and I don’t think they were aware it may not exist.”
“We have not had a fire drill for at least three years.”
